Hello 1234567i,

Most GPS receivers are not designed to be used for tracking. The GPS receives signals from Global Positioning Satellites and then uses those signals to calculate its current location, which it displays on the screen. However that data is not normally sent anywhere externally so there is no way for a remote user to determine where the GPS is.. Thus you cannot use a computer or any other device to track the GPS.

The Navigon 5100 appears to be no exception.

Without pairing the GPS with an external communications device (cell phone, two-way radio, laptop with a WiFi connection, etc.) the GPS lacks the ability to transmit its location reports to any external source. There certainly are ways that a GPS can be used with an external communications device as a tracker, but most GPS receivers do not have this capability out of the box.

Best Regards,
Ken

Navagon 7100 wont turn on


Hi guimonds,

Make certain you have the unit plugged into external power, and the indicator light (LED) is ON. It would be best if the LED shows "Green", indicating a full charge on the battery also.

Place a blunt-tipped object (larger paperclip or toothpick with sharp end cut off) into the hole at the reset location, which is on the bottom left part of the GPS. Press down for 10-15 seconds on the reset button, then release. Now, press and hold the On/Off/Standby for at least 6 seconds (try 10-15 seconds if needed) to power unit back on. If there is still no power-up, then your unit may be defective. Download the complete 110-page manual from here for more information:

I hope this helps get it working. If I can help further, please let me know. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

I can't find a battery replacement for my navigon 2200T? Found a place in Hong Kong but they sent the wrong one even after I gave them P/N and S/N.


I too have a Navigon and suggest you go to their website, probably Navagon.com. They can sell you a battery. If not, go to Amazon.com and key in Navagon.

My Navigon 5100 GPS will not turn on. At times, when it does turn on, it will not turn off.


I'm not sure if you realize this, but you must hold the power button for about 10 seconds to turn the 5100 on and off.
